Did someone say EC2? errr… Joyent?
We are going to be moving hashtags.org over to
EC2 Joyent for scaling to be handled when/if we blow up and start getting traffic. We’ve seen some pretty steep growth patterns and we’re afraid that if someone like Scoble picks us up we’ll be doomed. I won’t comment on the hardware we’re using right now, but let’s just say it needs to be a thing of the past.
As well, we’re going to be adding a few features here and there through the next few days, weeks, and months… so if you have any suggestions leave us some comments. We’ll do our best to translate.
(P.S. Hashtags has officially gone into debt ($0.10/hr). Aaron upped our EC2 server and the clock is ticking!)
We’ll be moving over to Joyent. After carefully looking at the offerings a bit more we found that Joyent was a better fit for this particular app.
